The New York State Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program allows single parent families to provide for their children's dietary needs. NY WIC has dozens of accepted foods, including healthy and balanced choices such as fruits, veggies, 100% juice, whole grain products, infant formula, milk, eggs, and more. WIC helps New York State households to thrive and provides the help and education they should have to consume nutritious foods for overall wellness.
There are many methods the NY WIC program assists Monroe County family members. Get the help your family members need. Learn more today!
SPCC WIC continues to provide ALL Services over the phone until further notice.
Our procedures have been put in place to help protect our families, our staff, and our community.

HELPFUL COVID-19 TIPS
Regular hand washing can help prevent the spread of germs and is one of the best ways to avoid catching or transmitting COVID-19. You and your child should wash your hands for 20 seconds—the length of time it takes to sing the ABC song—after coming in from playing outside, before preparing meals and after going to the bathroom.
Lavarse las manos con regularidad es una de las mejores maneras de evitar contagiarse o propagar el COVID-19. Enséñales a tus hijos a lavárselas durante por lo menos 20 segundos, lo que toma cantar la canción del alfabeto.
We are in this together! Help your neighbors on WIC by leaving items with a WIC-approved label on the shelves. These are for WIC participants who must follow set guidelines for the foods (including brands and sizes) that they can purchase with their WIC benefits. If we leave WIC-approved items on the shelves, we can ensure that WIC participants do not go home empty handed. #WICStrong #InThisTogether
Ahora es común ver estantes vacíos en el mercado. Si no participas en WIC —y no reúnes los requisitos para los beneficios de WIC— por favor, piensa dos veces antes de comprar alimentos con una etiqueta de aprobación de WIC al lado del precio. Estos alimentos son para los participantes en WIC, quienes deben seguir ciertas normas sobre qué alimentos comprar (además de marcas y tamaños) con sus beneficios de WIC. Por favor, ten en cuenta las necesidades de tu vecino. #WICStrong #JuntosEnEstas
